2. Some GNSS ionospheric monitoring techniques implemented in real-time and rapid latencies at global and polar scales
Prof. Manuel Hernández-Pajares (UPC-IonSAT)
We present the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) ionospheric monitoring techniques developed by the authors and implemented in terms of associated products, which are being computed globally, in real-time and rapid latencies. We will focus on the potential contributions to the improvement of GNSS performance and Ionospheric Science in polar regions, in terms of Space Weather...
The understanding of the impact of solar activity on polar regions upper atmosphere is not as strong as compare to low and mid-latitudes due to lack of experimental observations, especially over Antarctica. To characterize the differences in the ionosphere-plasmasphere total electron content (TEC) climatological patterns over Antarctica, we reprocessed the GNSS (GPS + GLONASS) data...

INGV operates a network of GNSS receivers acquiring data at 50 Hz incorporating a firmware especially modified to provide several parameters useful to monitor the perturbations of the high latitudes upper atmosphere. In particular, the first GPS receiver was installed in 2003 at Ny-Ålesund (Svalbard Island, 78°55’N 11°55’E). Currently, three receivers are operating at Ny-Ålesund, recording...
